Deryn entered her private chambers, exhausted from three days of nonstop work on the Leviathan. Finally she was able to take a few minutes to change out of her sweaty uniform and change into something more appropriate. She sighed, remembering that they'd arrive to Japan the very next day and Alek would vanish from the Leviathan forever. He would probably vanish into the wilderness and somehow find a way back to the main land and hideout until this barking daft war would be over. Deryn shook her head, clearing her thoughts of Alek from her mind, reminding herself that he was a barking prince -that's archduke you dummkopf!- and she was a lowly mooneye-eyed lassie that served as an airman. She couldn't fall for him; she couldn't, unless she wanted him to run a mile. Anyway once Alek was gone, so would her feelings for him, too. Deryn put on a determined look on her face and chased away all thoughts of Alek that entered her mind.

"Come on Dylan, it would be fun!" Alek pleaded, almost nearly bow down to him, just to accept the offer.
"No barking way! That's sounds stupid!!"
Alek raised his head, "PPPLLLEEAASSSEEE!!!!"
Dylan shook his head, Alek knew that Dylan had a weakness, and that weakness was begging.
Dylan sighed, annoyed, and wanted to get out of there.
"Fine! But it's for fun! Got it?!"
Alek nodded, and went to the dusty book shelf, grabbed a big, old decorated book, filled with endless words, covering the pages with German.
"Okay, here's who you're playing, Benvolio, Tybalt, nurse, and "
Alek spread a smile across his face.
Dylan's eyes widen
"NO BARKING WAY! I'm not playing a girl!"
Alek shrugged "oh, well. Here's who I'm playing. Let's see, um Prince,"
"I wanted to play him, you play Juliet!"
Alek looked at him, He chuckled.
"Well, no. You don't get to, I do. Besides, you have a pretty high voice; you can play a girl easily."

His eyes slowly got used to the murky darkness and he noticed the ceiling above him was made of crude stone. Water was dripping from it and onto the floor beneath him, which he guessed was stone as well, judging by the craggy surface under his body. He wanted to sit up but his arms were so heavy he couldn't even budge them.
Where am I?, Alek thought to himself, his thoughts still thick. It felt like his head was floating in water, bobbing around like a piece of driftwood. He honestly did not know where he could possibly be. The last thing he remembered was being on board the Leviathan talking to, to....
Alek felt his heart speed up. Deryn! He had been talking to her when the ship had been hit! Where was she now? He had to find her. Suddenly his muscles were fueled

The boys voice cut right through his, a smile on his face. "Tell me one thing right now, Alek" he looked Alek square in the eye, and he gulped, gripping hte fabricated leather that bound him into the seat, his knuckles white. "Do you trust me?"
Of course he trusted Dylan. He had kept Alek's secrets since they met. But this was not a matter of trust, it was a matter of life or death, or so it felt to Alek.
"Yes. I trust you." he told Dylan earnestly.
"Then listen to me when I say you'll be fine." he patted the yellow object in Alek's hand. "Just release this semaphore flag if something goes wrong, or if you get the clart scared out of you." Dylan smirked. "I'll be down here watching and I'll haul you down in a squick."
And with that Alek was climbing, no, flying. The small seat he was strapped to swung sickeningly as the godless creature Dylan called a Huxley rose into the air. Alek barely dared to watch as Dylan and the top of the Leviathan

There were at least five hundred people in attendance, most of them sobbing their damned eyes out. Alek shook his head. He was only duke for a few months, had he earned the right to have tears shed over him?
Alek winced as he took his seat next to Deryn. The wound Volger had given him still felt fresh as the day he had recieved it. Dr. Barlow sat on Dery's right, dabbing at her eyes under the black veil cascading from her outrageous hat.
He took Deryn's hand, and she gave it a squeeze. This was going to be difficult. No matter how insane Volger had gotten, or how terrible he had been to Alek as a child, he had been there, and had sacrificed many things to make sure Alek got his chance, even his life.
Alek had found out that day that Volger and Klopp were the only two to have made it out of the Leviathan's crash. Volger must have mistaken Alek's body for Bauer's charred corpse, and Klopp had lost a leg. He sat a f

Malone was writing furiously into his notepad, hardly looking up at Alek. When he finally believed that it was indeed Alek, the 'dead' prince of Austria, he had been estatic.
"Yes, I'm leaving tomorrow evening, and I'm not sure when I will arrive. So if you could wait....about a month to publish your article, that would be wonderful. Don't want them waiting at the docks for me. That would make for a most tragic end to your story, wouldn't it?"
Malone nodded, still writing. He finally looked up at Alek. "I can do that, with the promise that I will get to follow up with you."
Alek agreed. "Thats fair."
Malone smiled. "I have a feeling this story is never going to be over."
Alek nodded. "Agreed. It seems no matter where I go, theres always some kind of trouble."
Alek had quite the time convincing Eddie Malone that he was indeed who he said he was. He had to pull out the scroll from the late Holy Father
Chapter 11 "Trees"Unbarking believeable, Deryn thought as they scrambled out the door, the emergency alarm threatening to rip her eardrums apart. Alek was right behind her as they jumped off the landing between the compartments. Deryn took off as soon as she hit the ground, paralell with the train. Alek's footsteps were right behind her, but more were coming, she could feel it. There were shouts in German behind them, and Deryn dared a glance over her shoulder. The soldiers were weaving their way through the compartments, some had their guns already in hand.Chapter 11 "Trees"4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Blisters, Alek, they've got guns! Run like hell!" She shouted. She quickly darted to the right and leapt between another two compartments, then across the station landing and out the door.

There were walkers of all sized bounding up the streets, passengers in tow. Deryn weaved her way through pedestria

Alek whispered back "Lilit offered to make us dinner tonight, and I said yes."
Deryn coughed "Nice going." she sucked in a big breath and hurried into their room.
Alek's eyes had been watering for the last ten minutes. In an attempt to apoligise for bearing such bad news, Lilit wanted to make them all a nice meal. Alek agreed, not wanting to be rude, but also especting her to be a little better in the kitchen. Boy, was he wrong.
Lilit seemed to be enjoying herself, bustling around the kitchen, whistling happily. Lilit had run to the store that afternoon and came back with an odd array of things, some Alek had never even seen before, let alone tasted. But he felt terrible enough that Deryn had been more than unwelcoming to Lilit, he didn't want to stop her. Besides, it was too late now anyway, the entire apartment smelled of a most sickening misture of things
Like a DaughterDr. Nora Barlow strutted down the hall, her grip on the leash just tight enough to hold control over Tazza as she searched for a missing Mr. Sharp so he could give the thycaline the much-needed walk. Past her cool demeaner, she was outraged. She had put in good words to keep that midshipman aboard the Leviathan expecting the best out of him. She had kept his secrets for him!

Shouting down the hall broke her rampant anger. Her interest piqued but she had set out for other tasks than to eavesdrop on the silly men that the captain called his crew.
Turning the corner, Dr. Barlow stopped as she saw the one person who could lead her to the middy.

She Visits Her Friends
I can still see their smiles.
All my friends' familiar faces,
They stood here beside me at the eve of the gala.
Through this one night, all nights for years
Over the centuries, over the mortal lifetimes…
After gala I go to see my friends,
Meet them in their rest,
Give them my time…
This one night
I remember them, put flowers on their graves,
When they've left me
Where I cannot follow…
We had our days together.
Our laughter, rich and heartfelt.
In their company I felt peace:
Every moment's measureless ease,
No more a queen,
Not a goddess,
Just a friend.
Could I ever forget them…?
Is this the price I pay for immortality?
See them wither and fade over the passing times,
Carry the memories, when the world around forgets?
When their smiles pass away, when it's all that's lef

Deryn pulled out the materials she would need for the sketch. She decided to go with the extra dark sketch pencil and her unmarked eraser. She needed the sketch to come out as close to perfect as possible.
Deryn then pushed herself closer to Alek; she left one leg extended forward while the other held the sketch pad in place on her lap. Deryn then placed the pencil between her teeth and slowly examined the new project before her.

Like something was hidden deep within each word
that managed to escape his trembling lips.
A pain so deep,
earth shatteringly strong,
like at any moment his body would give out,
and he'd fall to the ground.
The weight of the world
finally weighing him down,
drowning him in an ocean of misery.
His voice shook
But he stood strong,
if anything a bit worn at the edges,
but he refused to fall.
With each pained word,
his strength disintegrated,
and the real pain began to surface
in his heartbroken eyes.
Life was a struggle,
life had drug him around,
beat him down,
And all he had left now,
were his trembling,

I wish I could write something that would make you turn around,

I wish I could write something that would make time stop,

time fade away.
I wish I could write something that would make you come back.
But they're just words printed in black and white.
They can't change what happened,
what is to happened,
and why it happened to us.
I wish I could.
But I know I never will.

A series of images ran through Deryn's head.
Memories of her past and current life seem to pass by in a blur. She saw yellow flames surround her father, her mother's voice echoing along the halls of her old home, her brother announcing that he was joining the navy. Slowly the images seem to slow down, she saw herself standing in a line of men with her head held higher than the rest, and she saw snow and ice surround the bodies of brave soldiers who died defending the Leviathan. And then from the shadows she saw a figure approach.
He crouched low and surrounded her, Deryn could feel herself slowly suffocating in its embrace, and she felt the figure all around her even though she could see nothing. Then a voice broke through;

"DERYN!" Alek shouted as he shook her limp body trying to wake her up, get her to talk, or do something.
Alek's arm landed on a small box as he continued to shake Deryn (as if that would help) and knocked it over. The clattering helped Alek see through his panic and look at what box he had knocked over.
"God's wounds," Alek breathed as he saw that this box was Deryn's smelling salts, "This could barking work!"
He opened the box and waved it under her nose trying to spread the sharp smell to wake Deryn up. Finally Deryn opened her eyes and Alek sighed with relief, "Thank providence that you're alright, Deryn! I thought you had just died! Are you all right?"
"Oooooohhhh... Alright isn't the right word here, I think," Deryn managed to get out before hurling right on the bed.
"Schiesse! What's the matter Deryn?" Shouted Alek and began to spout off all kinds of Austrian swears.

Alek leaned back looking shocked, as he saw Deryn wince from her pounding ribs and head, but managed to compose himself and reply, "Y-you're alive, Dyl- erm, what's your true name?"
Deryn stared at him, unable to process that Alek knew who she really was, answering, "Deryn, and how did you know that I'm a barking girl?!"
Alek blushed, whispering, "Y-you were hurt so I-"

By Your Side, Forever and Ever
Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.
I'll support your task,

The fire crackled nicely in front of him, drowsiness threatening to take over again. He stood and stretched, then headed out the door of his quarters. Someone ran into him just then, nrealy sending him flying.
"Watch it! - Oh! Sorry Dad!" the young boy ran to Alek and hugged him. Alek laughed and ruffled the boy's hair.
"Where exactly are you headed off to in such a rush, Jaspert Volger?" Alek asked, holding the boys shoulders.
"Out to the courtyard. Master Klopp told me he would let me take a few steps around in the runabout today!"
Alek studied his son's excited face. He looked so much like his mother, sharp fine features and bright blue eyes, but dark hair like his father. His eyes sparked with excitement, and his smile was as charming as anything.
"Alright, get along now. Remember, you've got a few lessons this evening with Dr. Barlow tonight"

Even more amazing was how attracted he was to her after only knowing her true gender for less than a week. It was like he'd known her his whole life. Well, he really had. Before coming to the Leviathan, it was like his life was a blur, a dream that never really existed at all. She was the only friend he'd ever really had. He felt completed when he was with her.
"What are you doing, you fool?" Deryn snapped at him as they were walking Tazza together one evening. Alek had absentmindedly reached for her hand, and she had to slap it away.
"Sorry, sorry. I am." he said, angry that he had let himself slip like that.
"You know how that would look to others, bum-rag. I don't need people thinking anything else along with what the already most likely do."

Lilit sat next to him, smiling. "I just had to know where to look."
He looked at her incredulously. "Seriously. How?"
